About this deal

Great images, tack sharp, with very little aberrations even wide open, and what is there is completely negligible.

Olympus themselves don't offer another 25mm prime lens, unless you count the older Four Thirds DSLR-specific 25mm ƒ/2.We also share information about your use of our site with advertising and analytics partners who may combine it with other information that you’ve provided to them or that they’ve collected from your use of their services. In a first for Olympus, outside of their ‘Pro’ line, they finally include a lens hood with the package. Also, keep in mind that if you’re happy manually focusing, you can pretty much mount any lens onto a m4/3 camera with an adapter. because it was smaller, lighter and cheaper and there was not much difference in the optical performance of both the lenses even though the Panasonic is a faster lens.

You have done some post-processing here, to correct the verticals (something I like to do too, to improve the result. Lens (SILVER) is a perfect standard prime lens, with 50mm equivalent focal length, offering best optical performance, fast aperture, with, beautiful bokeh and impressive close-focussing capability. It is very difficult to recommend single focal length lenses because I do not know how and what you shoot. is a nice, small and light pancake lens but reports of slow auto focus and banding issues under high ISO settings on Olympus bodies put me off the lens. I am not entirely sure of these flaws were already corrected by the lens, but I have a feeling that the Truepic 7 engine of the OM-D E-M10 did something to minimize the distortion and CA issues further.If you are approved you can complete your purchase immediately Representative example: Representative 19. This means you can keep your lens looking smart, even if you don't want to take the hood with you, if that's important to you, of course. Whether shooting from far or near, the images look and feel real, and believable without being purposefully forced. I’m also a self-taught photographer whose interest lies in shooting people, fashion, food and lifestyle. As always, good lighting, composition, and proper technique (camera on tripod, image stabilization off, critical focus verified before shooting, use remote release or time delay) trump equipment considerations.

And coming a long time after Panasonic version, I think the best strategy was that of offering a less expensive alternative. Engage with our used photography equipment partner MPB in a forum dedicated to giving members the opportunity to feedback their experiences or seek advice. lens bares Olympus' "MSC" (Movie and Still Compatible) designation meaning the electronic "High-speed Imager AF" system is nearly silent to help avoid picking up focusing noise in videos. You where shooting in bright light and I shoot street scenes and people at night using available lighting and want to know if this lens can handle focus with minimal light and contrast.

It doesn't feel fragile and because it's heavier then the 45mm, it feels quite substantial for a lens this size.Contrast and colour rendering are very good and are easily comparable with the results from the other M. For those not familiar with the m4/3 (Micro Four Thirds) system, the 25mm lens gives an equivalent of 50mm at a relatively fast aperture of f1.
